A woman In Britain was arrested following a roadside argument in which she allegedly bit into the roof of a car so hard, she left teeth marks in the paint. The accused woman, Rhian Jeremiah, aged 26, bit into the Fiat 500 in a place called Cardigan in West Wales.
According to eye-witnesses, a crunching sound could be heard when Jeremiah bit into the metal work which caused just over $400 worth of damage to the vehicle. The owner of the car, 23-year-old Selina Day, said her and two friends were parked outside a take-out joint called ‘Lip Licking Chicken’ at around 2am.
Jeremiah, who was clearly under the influence of alcohol, allegedly approached the car, became aggressive, and tried to open the passenger door. When the people in the car looked up they could see Jeremiah biting into the roof above them and heard what sounded like “loud metal screeching,’ reminiscent of the James Bond villain, ‘Jaws’.
The story goes that Jeremiah had been out with friends drinking heavily at a memorial night-out for her deceased boyfriend, Simon Jones, who was tragically drowned off the coast of Aberstwyth in Wales.
The owner of the car, Day, told the court that Jeremiah “came up to the car and tried to rip the door open. I couldn’t understand what she was saying – she was very drunk and was abusive. There was a bit of an argument and she sunk her teeth into the part of the car above the window. I could hear metal crunching. I had never seen this lady before in my life. I didn’t know what she was talking about.”
Even though Jeremiah denied causing criminal damage to the car, she was eventually found guilty by the court, sentenced to 12-months community service, and ordered to attend alcohol abuse sessions.
